DIATONIC SCALES: Three note per string shapes, with modal spellings.



DIATONIC SCALES: Three note per string shapes, with modal spellings.

Just another quick revision resource.

These are the three note per string patterns for diatonic scales. I've also included the modal spellings for each of the Greek modes so you can see what harmony is created if you use the modes starting on each of the seven notes of the scale.

If that doesn't make sense, don't worry, there will be a lessons explaining modes, diatonic scales, key signatures and so on coming soon.

      Go get a trial of this and you're away. All my diagrams were made on this.

  3. Thanks for your work Rob. I came here because I found a typo in a copy of Modes: A Brief Summary that I got years ago from a Google images search. I've been using that page for years with my practice but never noticed the typo. The Locrian Mode shows the 5th to be natural when it should be flat. But I came here and you've already fixed it! So I went to Amazon and bought a couple of your scale books to support your work. Very much appreciated!
